furnishing of our Wellesley rooms, and to 
see that " the teakettle and some of the 
devices of American girls are also essen- 
tials of the British student. 

That same night came the President's 
address in Corn"~Exchange, otherwise the 
City Market. This was draped in calico, 
for it is a bare brick building, and a. stage 
was built in the middle of one of the long 
sides. Upon this platform were grouped 
some of the most distinguished men in Eng- 
land, and when Mr. Balfour, the Prime 
Minister, who is President of the Associa- 
tion, arose to make his address, it was a 
very memorable scene. 

The days were full, with lectures in the 
morning on almost any conceivable sub- 
ject in science that one chose to attend. 

The work in Biology was especially 
interesting. The educational section was 
presided over^iby the venerable Bishop of 
Hereford, himself a head master of great 
repute before he was made bishop. In 
Economics there were papers of unusual 
interest, such as Mrs. Bosanquet's "Study 
of the Economic Importance of the Fam- 
ily;" and the chemical, physical and geolo- 
gical sections all had their ardent devotees. 

There were section meetings both morn- 
ing and afternoon; but the afternoon also 
had most delightful diversions in the way 


A visit to England is always an inspiring 
and delightful thing; but to stay for a week 
at one of the English colleges, as it was my 
happiness to do this summer, is certainly a 
unique experience. During the session of 
the British Association for the Advance- 
ment of Science in Cambridge, Mrs. Sidg- 
wick, the principal of Newnham College, 
invited a number of women interested in 
college work, to be her guests. 

We arrived in Cambridge on the 17th of 
August and reached Clough Hall, Newn- 
ham College, at afternoon tea-time. After 
being cordially welcomed by the Vice- Prin- 
cipal in charge of the hall we were con- 
ducted immediately to the beautiful din- 
ing hall, which is built in imitation of the 
older college halls, with its high table at 
one end. People were grouped about the 
tables on the floor in a pleasant and infor- 
mal fashion, drinking tea. The first per- 
son I saw on entering the room was our 
own Professor Willcox, a former Newnham 
student, and some of the other American 
cmests who had just preceded me. Then 
I went up-stairs and was shown my rooms 
—a real student's suite, a tiny bed-room 
and a charming little study across the hall. 
It was most interesting to compare the 
actual furnishing of these rooms with the 

Vice-President Student Government Association. 

of garden parties at Girton, at Emanuel 
and some of the smaller colleges and there 
was a magnificent evening reception at 

The scene at Trinity was one never to be 
forgotten, when "carriages set down at the 
great gate" and we entered under the pom- 
pous statue of Henry VIII and walked 
across the splendid great quadrangle to 
the dining hall, which had been cleared of 
its tables and was resplendent with beauti- 
ful women in beautiful dresses and fine 
looking men. On the raised dais at one 
end stood the Master of Trinity, a very 
fine looking man with white beard, in his 
scarlet robes; at his right stood Mr. Balfour, 
who is certainly over six feet tall, and at his 
left the Chancellor of the University. 
These three men in their scarlet doctor's 
robes made a most imposing sight. Mrs. 
Sidmvick stood beside her brother, Mr. 
Balfour and received with him the Ameri- 
can oxiests and many others. We passed 
on into Neville's Court, the great cloister 
of the College, which was brilliantly il- 
luminated, and into the Master's garden 
with crass flowering in electric lights of 
different colors. As one wandered through 
the cloisters, a little placard announced 
that at ten o'clock Mr. So-and-so, the pres-

1903, at the post office at Wellesley, Mass., under 
the Act of Congress, March 3, 1879. 

Now that we are back at Wellesley again 
and ready to take up the work of the new 
year we realize, perhaps even more clearly 
than' ever before, the value of the summer 
vacation. This is not only because we 
have been physically refreshed and 
strengthened by summer days out of doors; 
and because we are mentally rested by 
freedom from study A very large part of 
the value comes from the broadened hori- 
zon. The summer vacation takes us out of 
the academic world, gives us an opportu- 
nity, not only to gain that distance which 
lends enchantment to our view of past 
study, but also to test our college scheme of 
life and thought under outside conditions. 
Thus gradually we come to a better esti- 
mation of relative values and to see our 
work in truer proportion and in better 
Ucrht. All this helps very materially to 
make Sophomores out of Freshmen, Ju- 
niors out of Sophomores, Seniors out of

Christian Association Reception. 

The welcome of the Christian Association 
to the large new class of 1908 was especially 
successful in bringing together the Fresh- 
men and the three upper classes. Owing 
to the fact that registration had closed to 
all students, the reception was unusually 
well attended. At 7.30 College Hall Centre 
began to fill up, ana the new students 
were introduced to one another and to 
everybody else. Miss Hazard, Miss Pen- 
dleton, Miss Emerson and Miss Poynter 
received. Miss Mabel Emerson, Presi- 
dent of the Christian Association, addressed 
the Freshmen. She told of the ideals 
toward which the college had been founded, 
and how those same ideals underlie the 
work and the play of Wellesley College. 
Mrs. Durant's absence was a great disap- 
pointment to all who remembered past re- 
ceptions, and to all who looked forward to 
hearing and seeing her for the first time. 

After Miss Emerson's speech, Miss Haz- 
ard told a delightful story about a plain 
old man who, after learning that Miss Haz- 
ard's "school" numbered almost a thou- 
sand students, said stoically, "Peace be 
with you." She followed her anecdote by 
describing Newnham College in England. 

Miss Juliet Poynter, President of the 
Student Government Association welcomed 
the Freshmen to the body to which, by 
becoming members- of -Wellesley College, 
they had already pledged themselves. 
After Miss Poynter had finished, the Glee 
Club sang " 'Neath the Oaks," and "To 
Alma Mater," ending with the Wellesley 
cheer. The reception closed with class 
cheers, which were begun by returned mem- 
bers of 1904.

Billings Hall has been completed, and together with various 
changes in the surrounding paths, is a notable improvement. 
It is connected with Music Hall and will be much appreciated 
by the Department of 1 Music. Pomeroy Hall is open and is

Wilder and Noanett. 

Mr. Woods, a graduate of the Amherst Agricultural College, 
has been appointed Superintendent of Grounds. 

Billings Hall will probably be open by Christmas time. 

Miss Louise Just, Chicago University, 1904, is to have the 
domestic management of the Inn for the coming year. 

Miss Margaret McKenzie, formerly domestic manager of the 
Inn, has opened a house on Waban St., for students. The 
house was formerly known as Hotel Waban, but has now been 
remodeled and will be known as " The Maples." It accommo- 
dates about twenty students. 

Miss Ethel Bowman, 1900, and Eugenia Foster, 1903, are to 
assist in the Philosophy Department for the coming year. 

Miss Adele Ogden, 1904, is Assistant Registrar. 

Miss Mabel Seagrave. 1905, has returned to College. 

Misses Helen Schermerhorn and Nell Gould of 1906 have de- 
cided not to return. 


Those who wish to decorate their rooms will find an attractive 
loan collection of framed photographs in the Art Building. 
These pictures, representing great paintings, sculpture and 
views of English scenery, are especially chosen for the purpose 
and are carefully framed so as to make the collection as varied 
and pleasing as possible. 

The number of pictures to be taken at one time is not limited. 
They are loaned to any member of the College, either by the 
month, semester or year, thus giving an opportunity to become 
familiar with various pictures. 

A small charge is made for the rent of each picture, according 
to the length of time it is borrowed. 

Notices have been sent out to the village houses calling the 
attention of new students to the collection, and already the pop- 
ularity of the collection has been evidenced by the visitors who 
have made selections from the pictures.

ent occupant, would be happy to show Lord Byron's rooms 
to visitors; and other famous names were mentioned as the 
history of the College was recalled. 

Saturday was a free day, with no appointments for sectional 
meetings, but was given to excursions in the neighborhood, f 
declined to join any excursions, and left Newnham about ten 
in the morning, not to return until seven in the evening. The day 
was most lovely, with soft clouds floating in the clear, blue, Eng- 
lish sky, — a sky which seems a very homelike, brooding heaven. 
I went in and out of the colleges, going to Queen's, where is the 
picture of the charming little Queen Margaret of Anjou. I wan- 
dered in those lovely cloisters, and then took a boat and rowed 
myself for a couple of hours on the Cam. That perhaps was one 
of the great experiences of the whole summer, — actually to be in 
a boat on the river one has heard so much about ! I only ran into 
one boat and into one pier of one bridge, and when it is remem- 
bered that the river is very narrow and very full of boats, and is 
spanned by many bridges, I was quite proud of my oarsmanship ! 
The day ended with a service at King's College Chapel from five 
to six, when the choir sang a lovely anthem from Brahms' Ger- 
man Requiem, and Dr. Mann, the famous organist of King's, 
played superbly for five or ten minutes in the waning light at 
the close of the service. 

On Sunday evening there was a most magnificent festival per- 
formance by the choirs of King's. Trinity and St. John's. The 
organists of these colleges are all of them famous men, Dr. Mann 
of King's perhaps being the most celebrated. There was no 
organ music that night, simply the chord to give the choirs the 
key, and then such splendid work, beginning with a motet of 
Palestrina's, was carried on without a sound of accompaniment. 
The program was arranged chronologically, so that we had Pales- 
trina, the early Englishmen, Byrde, and Ferrant; then the more 
modern men: S. S. "Wesley in a splendid composition following 
the strict lines of the older musicians, but with more coloring, 
and, to end with, a Mendelssohn Psalm, the XXII, and an an- 
them of Brahms. The whole magnificent chapel was filled 
with people who sat with breathless attention listening to this 
music, which seemed to come from the very choirs of heaven. 
There was only candle light in the chapel, and as the flames 
flickered with passing gusts of summer air, and the wonderful 
volume of sound re-echoed in the vaulted roof, one seemed really 
in another world. That Sunday evening was the climax of 
everything that was most beautiful. The Newnham garden 
party followed and so the delightful visit came to an end. 

London is always deeply interesting. A few days there and a 
Sunday on the continent, and three weeks of pleasure on the 
other side of the world were over and my face turned again to- 
ward Wellesley, with very happy memories of the beautiful Eng- 
lish University of which I felt as if I had been a member for one 
happy week. Caroline Hazard. 


The twenty-fifth annual meeting of the Wellesley Alumnas 
Association was called to order at quarter before eleven, June 22, 
1904, by Miss Elva H. Young, 1906, President of the Alumnae 
Association. For the first time in many years all of the officers 
were present. 

The reports of the Secretaries and of the Treasurer were read 
and accepted. The Income Fund Committee reported 1,175 
paying subscribers, of whom 253 had not then paid pledges to

the amount of S408.50. The total receipts up to June 20, 1904, 
were consequently $2,052.25, which is a much smaller sum than 
that of the previous year. The Historical Committee announced 
through its Chairman, Edith S. Tufts, 1SS4, the presentation to 
the Association by Miss Susan Wade Peabody. 1886, of a 
valuable collection of "Wellesley Courants" and "Preludes" 
from 1SS7-1892. 

Miss Emily B. Shultz, 1894, Chairman of the Wellesley College 
Settlement Fellowship Committee, reported that the Wellesley 
Alumnae have contributed this year $200 to their joint Fellow- 
ship of $400 with the College Settlement Association; and the 
Committee recommended that Wellesley help support a Fellow- 
ship of $400. 

The Executive Board reported through the Recording Secre- 
tary, Florence S. M. Crofut, TS97, many innovations and addi- 
tions to Alumnae equipment, including an index cabinet to fa- 
cilitate Alumnae registration during Commencement week and 
the purchase of books as well as a case for filing and preserving 
detached memorabilia. The Executive Board announced also 
their recognition of the necessity of preserving in permanent 
form at the College information concerning Alumnae, such as is 
preserved of a few classes at Harvard and at Johns Hopkins. 
In pursuance of this fact, the Board prepared a series of ques- 
tions which were sent prior to Commencement to a few reunion- 
ing classes, of whom 1879 and 1884, as well as 1892 and r8g6 
have already responded in full. The questions ask for perma- 
nent home address, place and date of birth, marriage, children, 
degrees, advanced work not leading to a degree, occupation, 
philanthropic work and foreign travel. This information will 
also be used at the College by the Committee of Vital Statistics 
of which Miss Case is Chairman. 

The Executive Board announced that at the request of the 
College Settlement Association, Miss Elva H. Young, r896, 
was appointed the Wellesley Alumnae member of the College 
Settlement Fellowship Award Committee. It was suggested 
by the Board, that the address this spring at the College by the 
President of the Association become a precedent for some mem- 
ber of the Board to address the graduating class at Wellesley 
to inform them of the work and objects of the Alumnae Associa- 
tion, in order to prepare them for the duties of membership in 
the Association. 

The Treasurer of the Shafer Memorial Fund, Miss Ellen F. 
Pendleton, 1886, reported the balance on hand to be $2,137.80, 
which sum when added to the amount due it this year from 

the Income Fund, will make the total amount exceed $2,300; 
and as such, to be in accordance with the vote of the Association 
in June, rgoi, it was voted that the Fund thus completed should 
be delivered to Wellesley College — $300 of said Fund to be used 
for the equipment of the department of pure mathematics, 
and the remaining $2,000 to be invested and known as the Shafer 
Library Fund. 

The Palmer Memorial Committee reported through its Treas- 
urer, Miss Lucy J. Dow, 1S92, that subscriptions have been 
received for this fiscal year to the amount of $1,339.25. 

Miss Mary E. Haskell, rS97, Chairman of the Wenckebach 
Memorial Committee, reported the balance on hand to be 
$925^1. It was voted that on November 1, this fund should 
be paid over to Wellesley College. 

The Committee on Nomination of Alumnae Trustee, through 
its Chairman, Miss Ellen L. Burrill, 1880, announced the election 
of Mrs. Bertha Palmer Lane, r89i, to the Alumnae Trusteeship 
for the term of 1904-10. This Committee presented valuable 
recommendations regarding the fundamental basis of the priv- 
ilege of the Association of nominating trustees. 

Wellesley Clubs throughout the country, from Seattle and 
Southern California to the sturdy organization of the Connecti- 
cut Valley, were shown by the Corresponding Secretary's report 
of their work to be flourishing and loyal to Wellesley interests. 

Miss Roxana Vivian, 1894, was elected Alumnae Editor of the 
"Wellesley Magazine." 

It was voted to continue the custom of inviting to the Alum- 
nae luncheon non-graduates as representatives of Wellesley 

The polls for conducting the election of the officers of the 
Association from 1904-06, were open from 9.30 to ir A.M., 
ovitside College Hall Chapel and the result of the election was 
declared as follows: 

Mrs. Ada Wing Meade, r8S7, President. 

Miss Alice W. Hunt, 1895, Vice President. 

Miss Helen M. Capron, 1898, Recording Secretary. 

Miss Lilian B. Miner, 1888, Corresponding Secretary. 

Miss Mary K. Conyngton, 1894, Treasurer. 

An amendment to the Constitution was proposed as follows: 
To amend Section 6 of Article III by striking out the phrase 
"of more than one year's standing," so that the first clause 
shall read: "The duties of the Treasurer shall be to request an 
annual subscription of one dollar from all members." 

On motion, the meeting was declared adjourned.

The Alumnae Editor wishes to thank most sincerely all those 
who were kind enough last year to forward items of interest to 
Alumnae and former students for publication in College News 
and the Wellesley Magazine. It is only those who have under- 
taken the task of editing the Alumna; Notes who understand 
how welcome is a piece of news, especially an accurate one of 
some length; for a column a week is assigned to the editor, and it 
is supposed to be filled with facts and not by the imagination. 
Class letters and annuals afford many interesting notes and will 
be used with discretion. 

This year the Alumnae Editor, with the co-operation of the 
Business Manager, will make a special effort to circulate the 
News among the Alumnae. As many extra copies as possible 
will be sent out the first of the year, and later from time to time, 
to members of the Alumnse whose names are on the Publica- 
tion List of the College, or to whom a number would be of 
special interest. Those who receive these complimentary copies 
are asked to circulate them among other Wellesley people in 
their vicinity, so that a larger number than before may become 
interested and learn how to subscribe. It is hoped that in this 
way we may reach those who say at Commencement: "I in- 
tended to subscribe this year, but I did not know just how, and 
the year was over before I attended to it." Subscriptions may 
be sent to Miss Helen R. Norton, Wellesley, Massachusetts. 

The class of 1879 held its twenty-fifth reunion at Wellesley on 
the afternoon and evening of Commencement Day. The class 
assembled in College Hall center, and after brief exercises 
about the tree went to the Phi Sigma House for the more formal 
reunion. Of the eighteen who graduated in 1879 seventeen 
are living to-day and are all well and active, a pretty good proof 
that a college education does not undermine a woman's health. 
Eight of these seventeen, or forty-seven per cent., were present 
on this occasion, besides five former members of the class and 
three of the children. The class welcomed as its honored guests 
Mrs. Durant, Miss Whiting, Miss Hodgkins, and Miss Currier. 

At the close of the luncheon the President, Miss Evelyn S. 
Hall, after a few words of greeting, read letters from Miss Horton 
and Miss Hallowell and from absent members of the class; a 
song, the words of which were written by Mrs. Gertrude Chan- 
dler Wyckoff , was sung to the air of the class song, and the fol- 
lowing toasts were responded to: 

Greeting from Our Guests Mrs. Durant, Miss Whiting

"Lest We Forget" Mrs. Gertrude Chandler Wyckoff 

Since College Days Mary Ella Whipple

Twenty-eight members of the class of 1889 gathered at the 
Hotel Vendome in Boston, June iS, to celebrate the fifteenth 
anniversary of their graduation. The business meeting was 
called to order at eleven o'clock by the President, Mrs. Mary 
Bean Jones. It was announced that the 1889 scholarship fund 
of $1,000, founded in memory of deceased classmates, was com- 
pleted and the draft would be handed to Mrs. Durant for the 
Students' Aid Society during Commencement Week. Since 
this fund was completed a movement was started to raise $1,000

li was a greal pleasure to the class to be able to have present 
their associate member, Miss Case. Greetings from absent 
classmates followed the toasts and the reunion closed with the 
singing of the college and class songs. 

The class of 1894 held its tenth reunion at the Hotel Vendome 
on the evening of Commencement Day, with about sixty mem- 
bers present. The President, Miss Gertrude Angell, made an 
address of welcome and letters were read from absent members, 
including one of especial interest from Miss Maria Russell 
Russel'. The following toasts were given under the guidance 
of Miss Helen Foss as toastmistress: "Our Reunion," Alice S. 
Perry Wood; "The Joys of Thirty," Harriet Manning Blake; 
"Husbands, Pro and Con," Evangeline Sherwood Reid; "The 
Children, Our Own and Other People's," Elizabeth Bartholo- 
mew Sayre; "Those Lost Careers," Sarah Bixby Smith; "The 
Day's Work," Mary Conyngton; "An Unconscious Prophecy," 
Maud Thompson; "The College Beautiful," Roxana H. Vivian. 
The class had eight new songs for Commencement Week and 
used them with good effect, in particular at the rally around the 
class tree on Tuesday morning when speeches were made by 
Freshman, Sophomore and Senior Tree Day speakers. The 
following minute is of interest in this connection — Voted : That 
a willow tree, suitable in size and one that will grow, be secured 
and placed in the old spot for iS94's tree. Aside from the tree 
there seemed to be a feeling among 1894's that Wellesley had 
progressed in the last ten years and that some of the good idea 
1894 had about student government and other matters were 
being recognized. 

By the generous hospitality of Miss Mary Frazer Smith and 
her mother, the eighth reunion of the class of 1896 was held at 
their home, June iS, at one o'clock. Twenty-six members and 
four class babies were present. The luncheon was in charge of 
Miss Grace Godfrey, 1896, of the Domestic Science Department 
of Simmons College. The reunion ended with a Kitchen Shower 
for the class president, Miss Elva Hulburd Young.
